F*ck you, go play GTA Races or Vehicle Deathmatches if you wanna ram people off the road, it's ridiculous how people who want to race properly cant because of amateurs who cant drive. I cant be the only one who feels this way...

You're certainly not.  But even when I played legit racing games, there's always the asshole who can only win by ramming people off the road.

Some people are just jerks Mr. Simpson. Ive always tried to race clean however that leaves you wide open for a ramming, nice guys finish last. best to race with friends where you can agree not to race dirty i suppose

I dont get this. If you want to race like that go play some grand turismo... I race 'pretty clean' myself, and yes I do curse at anyone ramming me off the road but what do you expect in GTA. A group of highly wanted, randomly shooting and killing psychos who don't mind breaking into military bases left and right decide to race and you expect them NOT to trade some paint? Come on dude. Yes it's easy to ram people off the road without slowing down a bit, maybe that could be tweaked, but people will ram, deal with it. Othewise: closed session.

It's GTA, what do you expect? If you want to race clean, play Forza or Gran Turismo.

It's pretty easy to avoid the asshats on bikes it's even easier if he's coming in for the sideswipe break hard and he'll generally smoke a barrier.

This reply has gotten old already...

... one would like to race cleanly against human drivers.

 

And if you want to know, in Gran Turismo the racing can be dirty too if you play Multiplayer.

Ohhh.. you are definitely not the only one. But what can you do about it?.... As much as I hate it.. I have to do this to even finish 2nd. Winning races is totally luck, atleast for me.

maybe you're the one that can't race since ramming is perfectly viable option in this game

I agree it can be really annoying if it's all every1 wants to do

but really you should learn to live with it or play another game to get your racing fix

not trying to be a smartass I really think it sucks that people drive like complete retards but violence and mayhem is such an integral part of the whole game

i learned to live with it and just have fun in the total chaos that is racing in gta

 

strangely enough I do seem to own in most gta races XD

I was going to overtake this guy at the last second the other day to win and he purposely turned into me. I don't mind dirty players but that really pissed me off. I made it my goal to harass the sh*t out of him for the next two races. Every time I hit him off the track, it felt so good.

if you race clean you just follow the first place guy and at the end of the race use slip stream to beat him.  it gets boring.  you gotta do some ramming to consistently win.

I only race on Forza because of dickheads that just ram (And the catchup).  I was in a party with my best friend and one of her friends just continued to ram me, which ended up making me kill him for the next half hour and kill him in missions by running him over.  f*cker thought it was funny when I got mad that he rammed me because I was in a faster car.  I had the last laugh though.

To all players who complain about people ramming them in races:
Deal with it.  Crying about it isn't going to win you the race.  Learning how to control your vehicle and avoid these players or recover from their ramming will.

Sorry, but I'm done trying to race normally. Whenever I assume someone is going to race legit, because it seems like they're trying to, they'll still PIT maneuver me when it's obvious I'd finish before them otherwise. When it comes to staying legit or winning, I find everyone chooses not to lose. Now I do it to them before passing to make sure it doesn't happen to me.

 

The people who can race have learned how to act and react when it comes to car contact in public matches.

 

Adapt or die, basically.

I'm fine with people racing dirty so long as they do it in a normal context of a race. What I can't stand though is the ones who drive backwards and try to head on collision the first place person or set up multiple car roadblocks.

 

Really though "Catch up" is more of an abomination than any dirty racer will ever be

I don't mind those people too much, as long as they're aiming to knock out "a random person" or "whoever's in first". Basically, if they're not being biased, then I don't care what they do as long as it's allowed by game mechanics.

 

Something that even bothers me though is when someone is being biased, like when their crewmember is in the game and they try to knock the other people out of the race so their friend can win, even if they come in last to do it. Teaming up like that is ridiculously hard to play against, it's like someone is simultaneously ramming you off the road every ten seconds while also maintaining top speed in first place.

 

Luckily I've only been in one race where this was going on, but f*ck it pissed me off. I kept racing with them about 6 games, lost 5 in a row and then managed to knock out the cooperating players simultaneously and win. And then I left as fast as I could hit cancel at the vote screen lol.

 

Really though "Catch up" is more of an abomination than any dirty racer will ever be

Yup, right on the money. The developer who made catchup on by default has single-handedly ruined more races than every backwards-driving race griefer combined.

 

The worst part is that the ramming wouldn't even be such an issue if catchup was off by default, since most hosts would leave it off. All you have to do is get a bit of a lead so no one can use your slipstream and there's no longer any threat of being hit.

 

For people who hate being rammed so much: Right before you get PIT maneuvered, when you see that little blip speedily catching up to you, just remember that you'd still be perfectly safe if catchup had been turned off.

Tip: hang at the back of the pack at the start in large lobbies. Once most of the other racers wreck themselves, slipstream off the survivors. also, shunting someone's front tire with your door will almost always cause them to spin.

You know what the best way to counteract this is? Race and don't let them piss you off.

Race with friends or crew mates if you don't want to deal with people ramming you.

I get what you're saying but I don't entirely agree with it

yes, catch up has no place in a serious racing game, it's quite clearly mario kart BS

but you have to ask yourself is this a serious race game

I'd have to say no, this whole experience seems closer to something like burnout than a Forza or GT.

it's consious design decision which you may not agree with (I don't Always agree with it either)

but it does sort of make sense

 

learn to live with it is still the best answer, it's not a perfect answer  but it's the only possible option when you have a game like this with all kinds of players wanting different things

Completely disagree. To me that would just ruin the experience. What's the point in racing if the other drivers aren't actually there?

That's why it would be an option.  Not everyone would want this, but if some of us wanted to a clean race this would ensure one.

Discuss

It was the same in GTA IV.  You have to start the race behind other drivers and not take the lead until they all take each other out.  Especially on teh first turn.  You never wanna be 1st place on the first turn.   And obviously slip streaming makes this much worse than it was in GTA IV.

 

As the game progresses and people get to do all the stuff, some more serious racers will settle in.  Right now they are doing other stuff too. 

 

Although IMO someone needs to make some 3rd party site or ladder to keep track of good playres and crews to play against/with.  Cause playing with randoms is almost intolerable.

 

And f*ck GTA RACES.  WTF happen to shooting people?  There should tno be rockets in teh car, that sh*t is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo f*ckin stupid.
